Utter Filth

Oops, it seems that Athens was not the first choice of everyone for hosting the Olympics 2004.

It is reported that Dick Pound, a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), voted to award the 2004 Olympics to Rome. It seems that he felt that the level of pollution in Athens would harm the health of the competitors.

By all accounts hundreds of people die in Athens each summer, from the pollution.

The IOC are reported to be relying on good winds this summer, to blow the pollution out to sea.

Sounds like a plan to me!
